National Drug Strategy Household Survey: Urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Supplement, 1994

This survey is part of the series of National Drug Strategy Household Surveys, which are conducted periodically to evaluate elements of the National Drug Strategy (formerly National Campaign Against Drug Abuse (NCADA)). This survey aimed to provide baseline data on drug abuse for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, provide an indication and measurement of drug related problems in urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander settings and assist in identifying needs and strategies to address the problems associated with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander drug taking practices. The four areas of specific interest were drug use and exposure; knowledge, attitudes and policy preferences; law enforcement indicators; and campaign awareness and its impact. Background variables include age, gender, indigenous background, marital status and highest level of education achieved.
